Will the Xbox One still be available in retail during 2020?

In relation to the console wars of the 10’s decade the Xbox One has definitely been surpassed by the PlayStation 4 as far as popularity and success is considered. While the PlayStation 4 has managed to reach at least 80 million units worldwide since its release in November 2013 the Xbox One was also released during that same month and has sold approximately 39 million. Some people might argue that Microsoft’s Xbox One console was not as successful as Sony’s PlayStation 4 due to factors such as high pricing along with first party games not being as popular as the one featured on rival game systems. While the Xbox One did not sell nearly as much as the PS4 it was still far more successful than the Nintendo Wii-U which came out back in late 2012.

Since its release the Nintendo Wii-U managed to sell under 10 million units worldwide and was eventually discontinued in early 2017 due to its lack of commercial success in comparison to the original Wii console. Even though, the Wii-U was discontinued for falling below desired expectations in relation to sales some wonder whether or not the same thing would will end up becoming true for the Xbox One in the future. By the time we get to 2020 the PlayStation 5 will most likely be available in retail and in some ways will eventually make the Xbox One look obsolete despite how spectacular the high definition visuals for video games look on that console. But seeing how Microsoft kept the Xbox 360 around for at least a decade since its release in November 2005 its very hard to speculate on how long the Xbox One will remain in retail right now.

Would the development of a disk-less Xbox One console a great idea?

As of right now one of the hottest topics in the gaming world right now involves Microsoft possibility releasing a diskless Xbox One console sometime in the near future. As it currently stands Microsoft had never officially confirmed any rumors regarding the upcoming release of a disc- less Xbox One console but has been well noted that the company had expressed interest in focusing more on streaming in relation to gaming. The idea of a disc-less Xbox One sounds interesting especially if price is lower than that of the Xbox One S which averaged around $299 following its release back in the summer of 2016. In fact, rumors have circulated that the potential price of a disc-less Xbox One would be priced around $199.

The only catch of having a disk-less Xbox One console would be the exclusion of a Blu-ray drive which one of the few features that made the other models appealing following their respective releases. Also, the idea of having a disk-less Xbox One would be appealing in some ways because it could be a feature that makes the console stand out from it competitors such as Sony and Nintendo that requires people to actually buy physical copies of games that they want to purchase. However, some would probably agree that Microsoft should have released a disk-less Xbox One game console years ago despite how it may have been viewed by critics anytime between 2014-2016.
